I stayed in this b&b in August for four nights and it was brilliant. Better than any hotel. The rooms were warm, spacious and extremely clean (with fresh towels and tea making facilities every day) the cooked breakfast in the morning was beautiful and the lady who owns it and her family were extra nice. Made us feel right at... More

My husband and myself stayed at Rockvale House July this year. We cannot speak highly enough of our accomodation. Our room was clean and comfortable, the breakfast very enjoyable, and Margaret was kind enough to even hang out my washing enabling it to dry in the sunshine. To top it all excellent wi fi connection , no password needed. Top... More

My fiance and I were traveling from the Giant's causeway area to Donegal. It was rather late and we were tired. We had been trying to utilize the Rick Steve's book for site seeing, food, and lodging but we saw the property and it looked very nice so we stopped and inquired if there was a vacancy which there was....

My wife and I were just passing through Ballybofey about the time we usually start looking for accommodations. As we started to leave town we spotted Rockvale House. We stayed one night and it was a very pleasant experience. Margaret was welcoming and helpful. It was an easy stroll back to the town center. Our room was clean and comfortable... More

Very friendly and welcoming, very clean and comfortable breakfast was plentiful and unlike some hotels nowadays where self service seems the order of the day, served with a smile. The B&B is in an excellent location just a few minutes walk to everything Ballybofey has to offer. Would certainly recommend it and return again.

Stayed 2 nights for a wedding in the Villa Rose. B&B was in a perfect location as the hotel was only 5 minutes walk away. Breakfast was great & rooms were perfectly clean. Top class hospitality. Would definitely recommend it and stay again. Thank you.

Stayed in this b&b in early summer, was very lucky with beautiful weather! Great location - very close to nearby ballybofey and beautiful mountains/scenery out towards letterkenny . Very friendly b&b, family run, and received a genuinely warm welcome & great Irish breakfast! Would highly recommend it.

Had a fantastic stay in the Rockvale House B&B. We received a great welcome from the lady of the house upon arrival. Throughout the weekend, both she and her husband offered a lot of helpful info and advice and they really went out of their way to ensure we enjoyed our stay in Ballybofey. Like the house, my room was... More

Stayed in this B&B for one night and could not rate it highly enough! The rooms were spotless and extremely comfortable, with a more than sizeable bathroom. The service was all (and more) than you would expect from a lovely host and hostess. The breakfast the next morning was fantastic, and I left the place refreshed and ready to continue... More
